Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an excellent inspection score. In fact, its inspection grade was far better than its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. Our inspection grades are tied to items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this category typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility just a D for our long-term care rating and that actually turned out to be its next most respectable category. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility just a D for our short-term care grade. This is not a score to write home about. Our short-term care grade is generally used to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to offer highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Given its score in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next category we assessed was nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is a rock bottom score. This is clearly a significant disappointment. The nursing rating considers numerous data points. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This facility provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
